POP MART opens its first Malaysian store, with plans to expand further into Southeast Asia

POP MART, the market-leading character-based entertainment company known for its mystery blind boxes, has opened its latest store in Southeast Asia, continuing its global expansion. The brand's newest retail outlet, the first POP MART store in Malaysia, opened today on the fifth floor of the Pavilion Kuala Lumpur (KL) shopping mall on Jalan Bukit Bintang. 

The ribbon-cutting ceremony was performed by POP MART Global President Justin Moon, POP MART South Asia Pte Ltd Director Tan Tong Hong, POP MART Malaysia Sdn Bhd General Manager Max Tan, and Pavilion KL's Senior Director, Leasing, Mr Lovell Ho.

Malaysia is the latest market in the region that POP MART is focusing on now that the brand has established itself in Singapore - the POP MART store in Singapore's Funan will open in 2021. POP MART first entered Malaysia through cross-border e-commerce in early 2021. The company has spent the last two years cultivating the Malaysian market in order to lay the groundwork for local offline stores.

The opening of the Malaysian store means POP MART’s business expansion in Southeast Asia has entered a new era. Malaysia has huge potential as a major market for us after Singapore,” said Moon. “Both countries have a similar social culture and offer a relatively large market of art toys collectors. We can leverage on what we have done in Singapore to build things up in Malaysia, with the possibility of future expansion into other neighbouring countries.”

The 146 sq m (1,569 sq ft) POP MART Pavilion KL store was designed with color-changing RGB lights on the doors and visually appealing colours and displays to appeal to young adults and millennials. Limited edition items for local fans such as DIMOO Mango Jelly () Plus, SKULLPANDA Dark Maid Limited Edition 100%, Labubu Shepherd Limited Edition 100%, and other popular collectibles are available at POP MART Malaysia.

POP MART is celebrating a double birthday today, as DIMOO, one of the brand's top IPs (Intellectual Property) and most beloved characters, turns 520 (20 May). Fans can look forward to redeeming a variety of DIMOO gift-with-purchase items, as well as being the first in this region to get their hands on the latest DIMOO Retro Series, which is now available exclusively at POP MART Pavilion KL.

POP MART intends to expand its Malaysian market with more offline stores and robo shops in Malaysia's core areas, in addition to its online channels. POP MART has always prioritised the Southeast Asian market since launching its global business in 2018. According to Moon, Southeast Asia is one of the most important markets for many Chinese brands expanding into foreign markets.

POP MART Pavilion KL is located at 5.39, 5th Floor, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur and is open every day from 10.00am to 10.00pm.

5 East Malaysian Delights You Should Try This Kaamatan & Gawai Season

East Malaysians will be treated to some of the island's biggest celebrations in the coming weeks. Tadau Kaamatan is celebrated annually on the 30th and 31st of May in Sabah and Labuan, while Hari Gawai is celebrated by Dayaks in Sarawak on the 1st and 2nd of June

While both are used to commemorate harvest festivals, their traditions and rituals are noticeably different. Tadau Kaamatan celebrates the bonds between creator and creation, as told in the legend of Huminodun, a fair maiden who sacrificed herself by transforming her body into lush food and crops that saved humanity. Hari Gawai, on the other hand, focuses on making offerings and rituals that represent the people's gratitude for a bountiful harvest, as well as celebrating people and spirits and other natural representations.

Food is one of the most anticipated aspects of Tadau Kaamatan and Hari Gawai, which celebrate a good harvest. Many of us are looking forward to gathering with family and friends this holiday season and sharing a variety of delicious foods. Did you know that denying yourself of your favourite holiday treats can lead to binge eating, resulting in unintentional weight gain, stress, and anxiety? This is where mindful snacking comes in, which involves eating with intention and attention, focusing on the present moment, and savouring how the food tastes.

Here are five unique Sabah and Sarawak treats that you must try, as well as how you can incorporate mindful snacking habits while enjoying them:

1. Kuih Sarang Semut or Kuih Jala 

Sarang Semut, which translates to "ant's nest" in Sarawak, is made by frying long thin strings of glutinous rice flour, tapioca flour, and sugar mixture, similar to Kuih Karas in Peninsula Malaysia. The soft and slightly chewy snack, also known as Kuih Jala, is popular with both children and adults due to its intriguing taste. Take a few moments to bite, chew, and savour the unique crunchy texture of Kuih Sarang Semut for a more satisfying snacking experience. 

2. Penganan 

Penganan, a traditional Sarawak treat, is made by frying a mixture of rice flour, sugar, and coconut milk. This mini cake has a sweet and slightly salty flavour, a crispy exterior, and a soft, chewy interior - ideal for tantalising your taste buds, hot or warm. Because it is a fried dish, eat one piece at a time to practise moderation and portion control.

3. Hinompuka (Steamed Glutinous Rice Cake) 

Hinompuka is a delicious Kadazan delicacy that is wrapped in banana leaves as a sticky rice cake. It has a chewy texture and is sweet and creamy. Some recipes call for coconut milk to add a rich, creamy flavour, while others call for palm sugar to add a sweet kick. Its distinct flavour is also derived from the addition of pandan extract, banana, or grated yam to the mixture, making it an excellent dessert or snack option for those who prefer more subtle flavours. In addition to exercising portion control, elevate your senses by removing distractions from your eating environment and slowing down your eating pace. Check in with yourself before reaching for another hinompuka to see if you're satisfied with the portion you just had. 
4. Tebaloi 

Tebaloi or sago biscuits are a traditional Melanau food, but they are also popular throughout Borneo. Tebaloi, which is made from sago flour, coconut, sugar, and eggs, comes in a variety of interesting flavours and colours. Enjoy your tebaloi in small portions while appreciating the distinct texture, colour, and flavour produced by the firewood grill to enhance your gastronomic experience.

5. Bambangan 

While mango is frequently confused with this Borneo specialty fruit, it has a thick brown skin and a distinct fragrance. It can be eaten fresh or pickled with salt, grated bambangan seed, and snips of chilli to make dishes like Hinava Ginapan for Tadau Kaamatan. Bambangan has a sour, tangy, and distinct flavour, similar to mango or jackfruit. Give each bite your full attention, whether raw, cooked, or pickled, to extend the snacking experience.

Indulging in these delectable snacks during Kaamatan and Gawai is a wonderful way to immerse yourself in the rich cultural heritage of these festivals while satisfying your hunger. Because there is still a lot to taste and enjoy together, remember to be mindful of your snacking intentions - portion out your snack before eating and try to reduce or avoid distractions to truly enjoy your snacking experience where anyone, anywhere, and at any time can practise this.

Starting small during these festivities not only allows you to fully enjoy these treats, but it also puts you on the path to a healthier lifestyle. According to a Mondelez International report on global snacking habits, 78% of people today are more likely to take their time savouring indulgent snacks, and 61% take the time to portion their food before eating. Are you one of them as well? Visit to learn more about mindful snacking habits and benefits.

Huawei Malaysia | HUAWEI P60 Pro, Mate X3, Watch Buds, Watch Ultimate, FreeBuds 5 and MatePad 11-inch 2023 Now Available

Huawei Malaysia, known for its amazing photographic abilities and appealing design, has officially launched their latest photography flagship smartphone, the HUAWEI P60 Pro, as well as the ultra-light and thin foldable phone, Mate X3. The P60 Pro, Huawei's launch hero, seamlessly combines smart imaging and technical beauty, reinterpreting the traditional HUAWEI P Series design language with industry-leading developments in mobile imaging innovation. The P60 Pro delivers a delightful sensory experience with its gorgeous look and great performance.

HUAWEI P60 Pro, a legend reborn which redefines a new level of mobile photography, aesthetic design and all-rounded user experiences

HUAWEI P60 Pro inherits strong photographic and aesthetic genetics and achieves yet another milestone in optical system and aesthetic design. The current flagship features a fully improved optical system and is the industry's first to have an Ultra Lighting Telephoto Camera with Multiple Lens Groups. The lens, also known as the Ultra Lighting Telephoto Camera, may increase light intake with hardware that does not interfere with the device's small and lightweight design.

"Every generation of Huawei P series perfectly merges smart imaging features with aesthetic technology. This strategy adopted by P Series has resulted in one classic creation after another,” said Richard Yu, Huawei’s Executive Director, CEO of Huawei Consumer BG, and CEO of Huawei Intelligent Automotive Solution Business Unit, “The HUAWEI P60 Pro revolves around the art of Light, all while comprehensively evolving in terms of aesthetics, imaging, and user experience, and more especially, introduces us to a new era of mobile imaging."

The Eye of Light Design bringing Industry-leading Aesthetics

The camera module design of the HUAWEI P60 is entitled "The Eye of Light," and it places the most regularly utilised primary camera in the centre of the lens module. The main camera's super telephoto and super wide-angle lenses are spread on the upper and bottom sides, forming a Classic Camera Array. A suspended translucent covering created above the smartphone gives the appearance of a thinner device while allowing the Ultra Lighting Main Camera to shine as the visual emphasis. 

The HUAWEI P60 Pro adopts the New Quad-Curve Display with Huawei-exclusive durable Kunlun Glass panel1. The four sides are slightly curved while the four edges of the screen are more rounded, making the field of vision boundless and achieving a more immersive display. With the HUAWEI P60 Pro weighing at only 200g2Users can enjoy a more comfortable grip and touch experience. Additionally, the 1-120Hz LTPO adaptive high-refresh rate helps strike the perfect balance between smooth visuals and battery optimisation.

With the Kunlun Glass panel protection, it greatly improves the toughness of the glass and increases the drop resistance of the glass to 10 times3, due to the enhanced techniques to grow billions of nanocrystals that form the ultra-durable material. It even supports IP68 dust and water resistance4, giving users an assured sense of security during daily use. 

The HUAWEI P60 Pro display also achieves accurate colours through full colour gamut colour management and metameric matches in colour calibration, as well as wireless precise colour projection, allowing the mobile phone screen and the display to be efficiently and precisely coordinated. The HUAWEI P60 Pro became the first mobile phone in the world to be certified with TÜV Rheinland Colour Accuracy Dual Certification (Colour Accuracy & Precise Colour Projection) thanks to its robust display features. 

Aside from that, the phone is inspired by nature and reinterprets contemporary aesthetics. The Rococo Pearl P60 Pro has the industry's first Pearl Texture Design, which incorporates natural mineral pearl powder to create a unique natural texture similar to Mother of Pearl. The deep feather-sand Black employs cutting-edge Anti-Fingerprint Feather-Sand Glass, which feels as soft and delicate as a feather while shining like diamonds. 

Ultra-Lighting XMAGE Camera: Revolutionary Imaging Breakthroughs 

The Huawei P series was created with innovative imaging at the forefront of its technology. Every modification necessitates a complete upgrade and reconstruction of the camera's optical system. The optical system on the HUAWEI P60 series has been redesigned, with an Ultra Lighting Main Camera equipped with an F1.4-F4.0 Auto-Adjustable Physical Aperture, High Transmittance Lens Group, and a RYYB SuperSensing sensor. These significant advancements result in vivid photography in low-light settings, displaying details clearly in the dark. It can also deliver ultra-high dynamic range in scenes with higher light-to-dark ratios, such as sunrise and sunset, dawn and dusk; and the new XD Fusion Pro's Texture Engine, which depicts fine details that show off even the shine on the surface of glass. 

In addition to the Ultra Lighting main camera's revolutionary breakthrough, the HUAWEI P60 Pro has achieved a revolutionary breakthrough in Night Vision Telephoto photography, bringing Ultra Lighting Telephoto Camera with F2.1 aperture - the largest in the industry for a mobile camera periscope telephoto. The telephoto camera has also added an Ultra Lighting Lens Group to capture more light, which, when combined with the RYYB Supersensing sensor, has greatly increased the amount of light entering the telephoto camera. Users can now capture vibrant photographs during their city night walks, as the camera can capture and bring out the details of the rooftop neon lights in the distance, allowing consumers to capture the exact beauty they see and experience. 

Huawei's Super Moon mode is yet another industry leader. The HUAWEI P60 Pro features an improved Super Moon Scene thanks to the Ultra Lighting and focusing capabilities of the telephoto module. This feature perfectly depicts the distant moon while preserving the details of objects in the foreground. This allows users to experiment with astrophotography, such as creating visual illusions of the moon in palm trees and clouds. Nighttime scenes can now be captured not only clearly, but also magnificently. 

The HUAWEI P60 Pro also includes the Long Travel Slide Zoom Lens Group, which allows you to control the focusing distance and achieve clear imaging from long-distance photography to macro close-ups. It is capable of capturing willow branches silhouetted against the moon or the bright moon by the bedside window from a distance. It also allows for accurate macro photography at close range without disturbing the subject. This feature can be used to photograph pets in their daily lives, essentially acting as a pet diary device. 

Seamless and Lasting Experience 

The HUAWEI P60 Pro consists of 4815 mAh5 high-capacity battery that is placed in a compact body of only 8.3 mm in thickness respectively, supporting 88W6 wired HUAWEI SuperCharge. It also supports 50W wireless fast charging7 and 7.5W reverse wireless charging – bringing safe and convenient charging anytime and anywhere. Using Turbo mode, HUAWEI P60 Pro can be charged to half in just 10 minutes8, achieving a perfect balance between standby battery life and fast charging speed while maintaining a lightweight build.

EMUI 13.1 system experience: More exquisite, convenient and secure

Huawei integrates the best of both worlds by combining the imaging technology and aesthetics of the P series with the simplicity and smoothness of EMUI – which results in a more refined and user-friendly experience. EMUI 13.1 introduces 3D Weather AOD (Always on Display), which illustrates the rain, snow, cloudy or sunny weather with 3D effects and dynamically sends notifications of weather changes – an intuitive, creative and vivid display experience.

The camera interface introduces a Camera Zoom Ring, which not only makes photo taking a more intuitive experience, but also makes the zoom more precise and functional. The Camera Quick Menu also displays icons of the commonly used shooting modes, making it easy to operate the camera with just one hand and giving users a more enjoyable and convenient photography experience.

HUAWEI, Mate X3, the world's first ultra-light, ultra-thin, quad-curve 
and large-screen foldable smartphone9

The HUAWEI Mate X3 is an industry-leading foldable smartphone that raises the bar for how light, thin, and dependable a foldable smartphone can be. It is the result of Huawei's recent research and development efforts on users' experiences with large-screen foldable smartphones, as well as the integration of Huawei's latest self-developed premium materials and patented technologies. Users will appreciate the immersive experience of a large foldable screen as well as the exquisitely comfortable grip of a straight screen phone.

Some of the key features of Mate X3

Ultra-light and thin appearance with large screen 

HUAWEI Mate X3 stretches the limits of imagination, with an ultra-light weight of 239g and an astounding thickness of 11.08mm while folded, and 5.3mm while unfolded – making it the world's slimmest and lightest large-screen foldable smartphone. HUAWEI Mate X3 also features the industry’s slimmest-ever Type-C component with integrated structural design and is IPX810 rated for water resistance, offering unparalleled thinness and durability.

HUAWEI Mate X3 is equipped with a 6.4-inch11 3D OLED exterior screen and a 7.85-inch12 foldable OLED internal screen, with both interior and exterior screens supporting ultra-high resolution and 426 PPI pixel density, making it the first foldable smartphone to garner two TÜV Rheinland Certifications (Colour Accuracy & Precise Colour Projection)13. Not only is the picture quality smooth and detailed, but it also reproduces the world in true colour. For the first time, it is equipped with the Intelligent Light-Sensitive Display, the screens deliver a consistent viewing experience across environments, maintaining a clear display even in dim lighting.

Peak performance: long lasting battery life 

The HUAWEI Mate X3 includes a 4800mAh large battery as well as 66W wired HUAWEI SuperCharge, 50W wireless HUAWEI SuperCharge, and 7.5 W Wireless Reverse Charging, which easily meet the needs of daily use. HUAWEI Mate X3 also has a cross-hinge graphene cooling system for better heat dissipation. The 1800 W/mK highly thermally conductive graphene layer keeps the phone cool even when it's under stress, which is useful in scenarios like charging and gaming.

All-round imaging capabilities: periscope telephoto camera, faster shooting

HUAWEI MATE X3 sets a new standard in imaging with Ultra Vision XMAGE technology to meet the needs of all-scenario photography, for a superb shooting experience. Equipped with a 50 MP Ultra Vision Main Camera, a 13 MP Ultra-Wide-Angle Camera, and a 12 MP Periscope Telephoto Camera, the phone supports 5x optical zoom14.

Moreover, HUAWEI Mate X3’s main camera and telephoto lens come with an RYYB sensor, which takes in 40% more light15⁠ to generate vivid images, even in dimly lit environments.
